Carleton North Community Foundation
The Carleton North Community Foundation has generously and consistently supported art education for all ages as well as other initiatives at the Gallery.
In 2022, the CNCF provided the Gallery and the River Art Centre funding for an Arts Educator to mentor the summer students and summer camps for children, and the Shared Shots: Community Photography Show.
In 2021, the CNCF provided the Gallery and the River Art Centre with $2190 to support pARTicipate workshops and $11,000 to support the Community Programming. This includes adult, youth and children programming delivered at the Gallery and at the River Art Centre.
In Spring 2020 the CNCF provided the Gallery and the River Art Centre with $9000 to support the Visual Art Programming for 2020. This will include adult, youth and children programming delivered at the Gallery and at the River Art Centre starting in June 2020.Due to the challenges of COVID-19 all in-school and at the Gallery programming with the local schools had to be cancelled. We are looking forward to the day it resumes and in the meantime, the Gallery is preparing on-line arts education materials for in class art education. The summer children’s art camps were extremely well attended in 2020 with many camps being repeated due to popular demand. Workshops supported by CNCF over the winter of 2020/21 have been fully subscribed and we are anticipating a full summer of children’s art camps and adult workshops with guest artist instructors.
Also in 2020 CNCF has granted the Andrew & Laura McCain Art Gallery a grant of $1980 to offer a weekend of Arts workshops in the fall of 2020. This special weekend of workshops with artists from around New Brunswick was a great success with all workshops sold out well before the first day. The Gallery is planning to repeat this successful weekend in October 2021 with some very special textile artist instructors lined up already.
